Saving the world is hard enough, but what about the tests of inner strength faced by today's harried superhero? Unafraid to tackle the tough questions, "Does This Cape Make Me Look Fat?" offers illustrated self-help guidance for the caped crusader on the subjects of costume choice and self-esteem, guilt and X-ray vision, getting along with a sidekick, thriving in the team environment, negotiating a secret identity at work, and more. The action-packed, comic book illustrated advice will help heroes conquer fear of flying, get in touch with super feelings, and choose the nemesis that's right for them. Also including practical advice for avoiding lawsuits, coming up with a good catchphrase, dating other superheroes, and maintaining super hair, this hilarious self-help manual - and sly pop psychology satire - brings delivers the help heroes need to their gloved fingertips. In many ways, the life of a superhero is fantastically exciting: the intergalactic battles, the opportunities for travel, the cape. But beyond the obvious challenges of the superhero lifestyle (No, way! The alien sentinels are invading again?), there are many more tests of inner strength.
After all, who's looking out for your emotional needs while you're busy saving the world? Before you can be a superhero to Metropolis, Gotham, or Huddersfield, you must first be a superhero to yourself.
